Shopping cart wheels are made from the same material as roller coaster wheels. Every cart must be tough enough to haul groceries for a decade. At a cost of $100 each, shop owners are keen to keep these rugged buggies on the job. Meet the hidden device that helps keep them out of the hands of thieves and close to home.

'Mitchell' 7 months ago
So... this doesn't actually "keep" the cart on the job. It just makes the thing useless. I'd assume they would've installed a way to reverse it?Anyways, a GPS locater would be MUCH better at this. Then, they could actually TRACK DOWN the cart and get it back.

I don't know why, but all of the shopping carts in the UK have four spinning caster wheels. Stupid. The thing is sliding all over the place.
I was on holiday in Florida an was surprised the rear wheels are only forward facing. Makes a much more sensible idea.

Common sense solution: just push the cart on your merry way, shopping cart wheels dont have that much grip on pavement.

Solution for shopping cart thiefs: Simply keep the cart's front wheels in the air around the perimeter of the shop.

So, basically there is 75$ worth of state-of-the-art electronic wheel lock mechanism just to prevent theft of 25$ worth of cart? Makes sense...

'jtech0' 12 months ago
Never seen a cart like that. I know there are some places that do something sort of like this, but it is on the handle To get a cart you put in a quarter, and it don't eject until you take the cart back to the storage area connect it to the rest then it ejects the quarter. I think that though is more or less so they don't pay people to go get the carts, etc. and I guess if you're lazy then someone else does or maybe store person does and gets your quarter.

This thing with the wheel lock sounds cool, but i'd hate to replace all those batteries, if it had an induction charging base then maybe i could see it. Or maybe they have some long life lithium type battery.

"oh no. the front wheel isn't working" "how will i ever steal this cart?" haha. just pop a wheelie and keep on cruising.
'HatchetHaro' 1 year ago
first of all, why are the rear wheels on most shopping carts in the US fixed? in hong kong, all the wheels on the shopping carts are able to turn 360 degrees, which make navigating aisles so much easier. srsly US shopping carts get yo shit together.
secondly, this "anti-theft" device isn't even remotely anti-theft; thieves can easily just two-wheel the cart.

'Joe Hanson' 1 year ago
Pick part of it up over the locked wheel and replace the wheel when you get home? I used carts with one useless wheel that didn't turn before, only slowed me down slightly. And by shop perimeter, do they mean the edge of the paring lot? The cart would already be in the truck by then.

They brake often enough with just a bearing and a rubber wheel. Can you imagine the horror that will insue when this couple hundred dollar contraption will break / run out of batteries / accidentally activate. I think I'd rather just buy another shopping cart.
